Western Wall museum approved

Controversial Plan for Museum at Western Wall Gets Final Zoning Approval. Planning board rejects most objections to Western Wall Heritage Foundation building, but limits its area; opponents considering petitioning High Court (Nir Hasson, Haaretz).
An appeals subcommittee of the Jerusalem District Planning and Building Committee has given its final approval for a plan to construct a center called “Beit Ha-Liba” (House of Core Values) in the Western Wall Plaza in the Old City of Jerusalem. The center was conceived of and promoted by the Western Wall Heritage Foundation and the Western Wall’s rabbi, and will include offices, a museum and an educational center.

Background here, from back in 2010. This story has been quiet for a while.
